There is growing speculation that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, 80, may be getting ready to retire.
The sooner the better.
The retirement of Kennedy, the ninth swing vote on a 4-4 court, would open the door for President Trump to nominate another constitutional conservative that could turn around the liberal, activist bent that has dominated for the past decade.
Other liberals on the court, who were probably convinced that Hillary Clinton would be elected president, chose not to retire when President Obama was in office and the Republicans controlled the U.S. Senate, which confirms appointments to the Supreme Court.
Kennedy’s potential retirement – this year or in 2018 – would mean a 5-4 split between conservatives and liberals on the court. And other aging liberal justices might be forced to resign for health reasons, opening the door for Trump to stack the court with justices that believe in a strict interpretation of the Constitution – not that it is a living document.
That could signal the overturning of Roe v. Wade – the unconstitutional landmark case that took prohibition of abortion away from the states and legalized it throughout the nation. That has resulted in the American Holocaust, with almost 60,000,000 unborn babies being slaughtered in their mother’s wombs.
Trump wants Roe overturned and left to the purview of the states. If that happens, abortion will be outlawed in Oklahoma. A better solution would be to criminalize abortion in all fifty states and put an end to this legalized barbarism.
This is one reason why Republicans who don’t like Trump need to support him. Hillary Clinton would have solidified the liberal block on the court and things would be much worse.
Let’s hope Kennedy retires soon and other activist justices follow suit quickly.
